Katie Longua

A Monstrous Case of the ‘Munchies’ from Katie Longua [Back Pages]

munchies-feat

A year ago, cartoonist Katie Longua --- best known for her ongoing Viking comic Rök --- started making a gag comic, mainly for herself, called Munchies. It's fairly simple to start with: it follows a girl who gets high one afternoon, then gets hungry, and then.... gets into universe-endangering trouble as she turns into a giant wolf monster who can only be stopped through the judicious application of pizza rolls and/or Cheetos.

Vivid, vibrant and very funny, Longua's comic has now come to Kickstarter as she looks to fund a print run of the story. As huge fans of her work as a writer and as an artist --- take a look at her coloring in the preview pages below --- ComicsAlliance got in touch to find out more about her plans for Munchies as part of our regular crowdfunding Q&A, 'Back Pages'.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Mad Men, Boondocks, Pokemon, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction & More

Untitled-1

 
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

Katie Longua's Rök #1

On paper, Katie Longua's Rök might not sound like it's going to be good. It is, after all, a comic starring a fictionalized version of the character's roommate and her magical destiny, full of inside jokes about homework and things said roommate carries around in her purse. I mean, seriously, I've read enough comics that "It's about me and my friends but as superheroes" is a gigantic red flag that usually scares me off toute de suite. The thing is, when Longua set about telling that exact story, she somehow managed to make it super fun.

Of course, it probably doesn't hurt that she calls it "the manliest magical girl comic around," and that the contents of her roommate's purse are "two knives and mace."
